Well I have had my sewing machine on none stop.... Ha ha it seems that way! It's cooling down now waiting for the next project!
As you all know I have been working away on the Cozy Afternoon free block of the month designed by Jacquelynne Steves. (See previous post for link)
There are 5 blocks and I had already shown you block one... But... I have finished them all now!! Omg!!! They are all done!! Yippppeeeeee!! I can hardly believe it myself that I have done all 5!
It's my first experience at making blocks, it was not easy, and some places actually frustratingly hard too. But by block 5 I had just started to get the hang of it! Ha ha
I got to block 4 and NO!!! Actual maths needed! Eeek!! I tell you having dyscalculia is no fun at times... I really am useless. Jon again helped me :) you will see on the photos what I mean!!
And a HUGE thank you to Han for helping choose fabrics and colours as I am 100% useless!!
Here is my 'block' journey...
Ok... So what now? I am wondering the same thing! What shall I do with them? I don't have any of that filler thing you all use to quilt so that's out! I am going to have a think.... Or if you have an idea, please share!! Thank you :)
Oooh I have to share with you all a lovely giveaway gift I selected for....
This box.... Ah but what is inside??
As you all know I am a huge fan of The Scarlet Letter designs, I am a member both blog and Facebook and am currently stitching Mary Gale.. More on her next post! There was the most awesome giveaway to celebrate a members birthday, such a sweet kind thing to do :) and lucky me was chosen!!! Eeeekkk!!!
Oh yes!! Here is what is in the box!!
THE most amazing needlework scissors I have ever used!! Seriously!! I cut some thread with them and it was like a knife gliding through butter...smooth and soft. The scissors are very light too, lighter than I has expected, they are so lovely to use. I feel ever so lucky to have been chosen.
There was something else in the package!!
This beautiful diary..
Inside are pictures of the most beautiful samplers I have ever seen, with snip its of little sections all charted to stitch yourself. It's brilliant and oh I love it!! And the added bonus it's a diary!! Again I feel so very lucky.
Ok I am going now as I have some primitive hearts to stitch! Smiles to you all and thank you so much for popping in :)
